The troubled year 2011-2012 II

The troubled year 2011-2012 I

That description of our Dakom group couldn’t be any more truthful. On second thought, it could actually be an understatement, but I’ve been through enough troubles this academic year that I wouldn’t mind whatever level of ‘troubled’ it would be … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Saturday the 14th

I always find myself having an extra load during Saturdays of January, as if I don’t have enough engagements to keep my procrastinating self sleep-deprived throughout the month. Last year, my Saturdays were spent going to the Radyo Veritas station … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa
